This weekend, Warner Bros. kicks off its DC Extended Universe (DCEU) with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which pits two iconic heroes against each other. In just over one month, though, Marvel will unveil the first installment of Phase Three with Captain America: Civil War, featuring almost every hero in the MCU squaring off against each other. Today we have two new TV spots from ComicBook.com and Adoro Filmes, which features intriguing footage from this superhero adventure.
The first TV spot teases that Cap's (Chris Evans) longtime friend Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. The Winter Soldier, is at the heart of the conflict that drives a wedge between Cap and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.). Bucky is still a wanted man after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and we see that Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) tries to keep Cap from interfering, but that doesn't happen, as Cap sides with Bucky, leading to a massive fight. The second TV spot doesn't contain much new footage, but it showcases several of the individual heroes fighting on both sides.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Team Iron Man includes Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Vision (Paul Bettany), War Machine (Don Cheadle) and the new character T'challa (Chadwick Boseman), who will make his debut in this movie before starring in Black Panther, set for release on February 16, 2018. Team Cap includes Captain America (Chris Evans), The Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Marvel's Captain America: Civil War also stars Frank Grillo as Crossbones, William Hurt as Thaddeus Ross and Daniel Brühl as the villainous Baron Zemo.
Anthony Russo & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016. Take a look at these new TV spots below, and stay tuned for more from this highly-anticipated superhero adventure.
